DETROIT — Cooper Tire is recalling more than 430,000 truck and SUV tires in the U.S. because they can develop sidewall bulges that could lead to tire failure.
The recall covers certain Discoverer, Evolution, Courser, Deegan, Adventurer, Hercules, Back Country, Multi-Mile, Wild Country and Big O tires in several sizes.
The company says in documents posted Friday by U.S. safety regulators that the bulges can cause a sidewall separation. That can make the tires lose air rapidly, increasing the risk of a crash.
Cooper, based in Findlay, Ohio, said there have been no deaths or injury claims, or property damage, due to the problem.
Owners will be notified and dealers
The tires were made between Feb. 1
